(Stouffers Lasagna Italiano)... You eat ice cream..

Sadly, lasagna italiano has Italian sausage in it which has fennel in it. Stouffers, however, seems to have decided that they need to fill the aforementioned lasagna with fennel seeds.. Fennel is one of the absolute worst tastes in the world to me. Blech!!!!

Ok rant over... Off to fix a bowl of ice cream..

OMG! I am right there with you! Fennel seeds are AWFUL! I've hated them since I was a kid. I always associate them with cheapness, too.

When dinner fails for us we go buy Little Ceasars, lol.

When dinner fails, DH goes and gets us something. Lately it's been Chick Fil A since it's literally down the street from us. I like the ice cream solution though.

I also hate fennel seeds! Normally SO or I will go get something or order something delivered if he's not getting home until late and I've screwed up dinner or it just turns out awful. We really need to stop doing that, though. haha. Eating a bowl of cereal or having a sandwich instead of ordering out wouldn't kill us.

I'm a fennel seed hater too! I much prefer Stouffer's lasagna w/meat sauce because it doesn't have Italian sausage in it and my kids and DF will devour it.

Cereal or take out are my go-tos when dinner fails!

Most of the time we just suffer through but I have occasionally misjudged the time it takes to cook a roast or ham. In that case I usually microwave some nuggets and frozen peas for the girls (we always have those on hand as a back up).

our back up is normally breakfast food (eggs or pancakes) or burgers (made ahead of time and in the freezer).

I'll just make something easy if dinner is a bust, like nuggets or sandwiches.
